We are interested in pursuing socially relevant problems in a unique way. Our chemical toolkit includes molecular and supramolecular materials that incorporate elements from across the periodic table. We use DFT calculations to assist in targeting the best new materials. See the research page or send me an email for more information.
The students in my lab will acquire a wide variety of practical skills including inorganic synthesis and reactivity, structure determination through spectroscopic and diffraction techniques, and modern computational methods. I encourage my students to tackle modern research problems in creative ways, and I will assist them in obtaining a rigorous understanding of the underlying principles related to their research project.
See you in class at 2:00 pm on Tuesday.
The boxes have started arriving and the place is starting to look ready for research
